Firstly, welcome to the forum!

When I am not madly producing artwork, I am a teacher & I love questions!

Here is a response from one of our moderators EER:

Select the area you wish to crop to using one of the selection tools :EllipseSelectTool::RectangleSelectTool: .

Press Ctrl+Shift+x to crop to the selection.

People get a bit antsy if you don't try to use the search function but search is only as helpful as asking the right question & using the context specific terminology.

Bear in mind too, that the above makes the whole image (canvas & all) the size that you've cropped to.

Please feel free to Private Message (PM) me. I'll help here I can.

Also, the way you've succinctly put the request for help in the subject line is very good! Again welcome.

hi again. many tnx for replies. i did try the search function first, but got no specific reply to my question, hence the post. as you say, this could easily be because of the way i asked the question. anyway, tnx again, much appreciated. gonna look at the 2 links posted as well.

If you don't want that, another approach is to select the part you want to keep, use ctrl-I to invert the selection, and hit the delete key to remove the stuff you don't want.
